Program Notes: 

Shostakovich’s creative force was so strong, he once said, “If they cut off both hands, I will compose music anyway holding the pen in my teeth.” Voted by UMSO performers as the work they most want to perform this season, Symphony No. 10 is paired with selections from Bernstein’s On the Town, the 1944 musical about three sailors enjoying a 24-hour shore leave in New York City, and Variations on a Theme by Haydn composed by Brahms. 


  • Bernstein: Three Dance Episodes from On the Town
  • Brahms: Variations on a Theme by Haydn
  • Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10.
